'A simply wonderful, irresistible book' DAILY TELEGRAPH

'A terrifically entertaining and imaginative story wrapped round its tough, thought-provoking philosophical heart' DAILY MAIL

'Remarkable ... an extraordinary achievement' SUNDAY TIMES


When 14-year-old Sophie encounters a mysterious mentor who introduces her to philosophy, mysteries deepen in her own life. Why does she keep getting postcards addressed to another girl? Who is the other girl? And who, for that matter, is Sophie herself? To solve the riddle, she uses her new knowledge of philosophy, but the truth is far stranger than she could have imagined.

An addictive blend of mystery, philosophy and fantasy, Sophie's World is an international phenomenon which has been translated into 60 languages and sold more than 40 million copies.

MEDIA REVIEWS

A simply wonderful, irresistible book - DAILY TELEGRAPH

A unique popular classic - THE TIMES

A marvellously rich book. Its success boils down to something quite simple - Gaarder's gift for communicating ideas - GUARDIAN

Remarkable ... What Jostein Gaarder has managed to do is condense 3,000 years of thought into 400 pages; to simplify some extremely complicated arguments without trivialising them ... SOPHIE'S WORLD is an extraordinary achievement - SUNDAY TIMES

Challenging, informative and packed with easily grasped, and imitable, ways of thinking about difficult ideas - INDEPENDENT ON SUNDAY

A whimsical and ingenious mystery novel that also happens to be a history of philosophy ... What is admirable in the novel is the utter unpretentiousness of the philosophical lessons ... which manages to deliver Western philosophy in accounts that are crystal clear - WASHINGTON POST

A terrifically entertaining and imaginative story wrapped round its tough, thought-provoking philosophical heart - DAILY MAIL

“Sophie's World”

The biggest let down of a book I have ever read. Hated it and had to force myself to finish it.
